|Around the Corner - MGuhlin.net - Using Bulk Emailers in K-12 Settings - Miguel Guhlin - MGuhlin.net/blog|
Ever tire of sending out emails one at a time to a large group of people, even though your work is education related? I have. Just recently, I emailed an HTML newsletter on what we're doing in Instructional Technology to over 3000 staff in my school district. To accomplish that, I used what's known as a bulk emailer. No, bulk emailing isn't just for spammers anymore...it's also for legitimate uses! While blogs and the ability of that content to be subscribed to is important, email remains the lo...

|Podcast: Around the Corner - MGuhlin.net - PC-PAL Solutions Interview with Harold Mena and Mike Griffin - Miguel Guhlin|
When I first became aware of PC-PAL Solutions (almost 2-3 years ago), I couldn't justify buying it in the face of other initiatives with higher priorities. However, as we've laid some of those initiatives to rest, the need became even more pressing for anytime, anywhere learning. As such, I found myself reviewing several different solutions and options. While I began with online, web-based tutorials--like Atomic Learning and Learning.com--I quickly realized that because of the urban, low socio-e...

|AudioCast/Podcast: Around the Corner - MGuhlin.net - Imprisoning Lightning: The Challenge of Social Networking in K-12 Education - Miguel Guhlin (Around the Corner - MGuhlin.net/blog)|
In this audiocast, I share an article I wrote--with a few connections to a NECC podcast I heard earlier today--last week entitled, Imprisoning Lightning. The points it raises really refer to the question of whether schools should place themselves between liberty and oppression? Obviously, some in business believe that use of "freedom tools" is wrong. As you listen to this, what side "of the line" do you come down on? More information at http://www.mguhlin.net/blog

|Powerful Beyond Measure - Miguel Guhlin|
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure." In K-12 schools today, teachers are under siege. They are frozen, immobilized by fear to fight back against the legislation that promises to free children, but in turn, enslaves them with high stakes testing practices. This podcast shares a response based on Dietrich Bonhoeffer's approach.
